Another "help me ID this song based on scant detail" question

Quite some time ago on another site someone posted the lyrics to a song (so I have never heard it, just read it) that has been rattling around in bits in my head ever since. Who is it by? No idea, but I am pretty sure it is one of the proto/nouveau/modern-celtic bands like The Waterboys, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Black 47, Fiddler's Green, etc. [more inside]

Need great songs about listening!

A friend is organising an event about protecting children from child abuse. Most cases where a child dies from abuse or is significantly harmed show a lack of professionals actually listening to the child - this event is to encourage agencies working with these children to listen more and listen better. She needs music (for background, as people are arriving and in between speakers) with a message of listening and hearing. There's lots of promising song titles out there but most are obviously about lost loves. Can anybody recommend some great songs which may fit the bill? Bonus points for songs likely to be familiar in the UK!

Self-referential song by Mason Williams?

Self-referential song by Mason Williams or Smothers Brothers 60's 70's; lyrics about the song structure, ex: "this is the bridge, it takes you to the end of the song", verse, chorus, etc., all in appropriate places. Saw it performed on U.S. television in that era.

Is there a website that categorizes songs by mood or subject?

Is there a website that categorizes songs by mood or subject? Searching iTunes for title words and hoping the title then corresponds to the lyrics/mood doesn't always give the best results. [more inside]

Who's the biggest queen of them all?

Looking for a song a friend heard played at a club this time last year. The only thing he remembers about it is a lyric something like "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the biggest QUEEN of them all?!" Anyone recognize it? Thanks in advance.

Help me find the artist

SongLyricFilter : I heard a song on a local semi-indie radio show, and would like to know who it was. I remember precious few details, however. Sparse arrangement, just a singer and a guitar at first. I remember the phrase "space and time" coming up a lot, and something like "I could write a long letter."

Sorry to be so vague. Any ideas?
